Can help be subjected to version control too?
E.g.
http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?regress
can show the current (last version) syntax of regress, while

http://www.stata.com/help7.cgi?regress
could show syntax of regress as in Version 7.

http://www.stata.com/help8.cgi?regress
could show syntax of regress as in Version 8.
....

etc.


Is that at all possible?
